Following several updates to the Xbox UI last month and the announcement of the upcoming Xbox codenamed Project Scorpio, Microsoft has revealed the four games that’ll be made available to its Xbox Live Gold members in May.
Xbox Live Gold members gain access to these four games as part of the Games with Gold program.
Two games each have been announced for Xbox 360 and Xbox One but due to Backward Compatibility, Xbox One owners can also download and play the games being released for Xbox 360.
So, for Xbox One owners, there are four titles to play this May while Xbox 360 just get their hands on two.
“May is shaping up to feed your appetite for adventure, combat, and mystery with four community-acclaimed games to add to your Xbox library,” Mike Nelson, Xbox Wire Editor wrote in the blog post.
